Rita Bailey, Pulaski County District Court Judge and an Infinity Project organizer from Arkansas, joined other project organizers who came to Minnesota to develop strategies for advancing judicial diversity across the circuit. The well-qualified women serving on the federal bench in Arkansas include Chief Judge Susan Owens Hickey, Erin Wiedemann, Kristine Baker, Susan Weber Wright, Patricia S. Harris and Beth Deere.
According to Gavel Gap, 21% of Arkansas state court judges are women compared to 36.5% of the Arkansas population and 3% of state court judges are women of color compared to 13.5% of the population.
